Pekka Viljakainen, adviser to the Skolkovo Foundation president, said large Russian corporations investing in startups seek a controlling stake of at least 30 percent.
"There is not enough mutual trust in the local business environment," Viljakainen said in his address at the Open Innovations Forum. "Companies are afraid to lose control under the current situation." Such pressure, however, can have an adverse effect whereby startup founders are not motivated to take risks and accept responsibility. Viljakainen believes tech entrepreneurs can create a unique product only if they are given more freedom.
